Soon, Minogue began work on her ninth studio album Body Language. Aiming to create a dance-pop album inspired by electronic music from the s,  Minogue enlisted collaborators such as Cathy DennisDan CareyEmiliana TorriniJohnny Douglas and Mantronix. The influence we used on Body Language was more mid-'80s, specifically Scritti Politti " Sleepwalker - Various - Strange Love 3 (CD). Talking further about Scritti Politti, a British post-punk band, Minogue reminisced about her collaboration with the band's frontman Green Gartsidewho provides vocals on the track "Someday", saying, "To this day I haven't met him!
I left a message on his answering machine, saying, "Hi, it's Kylie! I just wanted to say thanks so much! You sound brilliant! You There! It was all quite surreal. I still think Kylie's people were trying to call Jameliaand they just got the wrong number. It'd be much more funny if that is how it actually happened". Critics noted references and similarities to s pop music throughout the album, Sleepwalker - Various - Strange Love 3 (CD).
Lyrically, Body Language touches upon themes like enjoyment, flirting, sex,  and "partying like it's all over again". I wrote lyrics that were intensely personal to me on an album a few years ago. Maybe people know me better now, and therefore, if a songwriter pitches me a song, they might tailor it [to fit me]. I get the lyrics of a tune and interpret them my way". Body Language was released on 14 November in Australia,  while in the United Kingdom it was released three days later.
Her appearance is similar to that of French actress and singer Brigitte Bardot who was regarded as the "first foreign-language star ever to attain a level of international success comparable to America's most popular homegrown talents" and one of the best known sex symbols of the s and s, frequently cited as the "archetypal sex kitten" and "sex goddess".
She's a great iconic reference, particularly that period where she was working with Serge Gainsbourg ". An accompanying music video for the song was directed in Los Angeles by Jake Navaand features Minogue performing dance routines in various locations. A one-off concert show was held at entertainment venue Hammersmith ApolloLondon, on 15 November to mark the release of Body Language.

At Metacriticwhich assigns a normalized rating out of to reviews from mainstream critics, Body Language received an average score of 62 based on 17 reviews which indicates that the album received "generally favourable reviews".
He also complimented Minogue's "willingness to try something new — even if it's within the confines of dance-pop — is what's made her an international sensation 15 years running". Chris Willman from Entertainment Weekly called it Minogue's " Madonna-meets-Mirwais move" and felt that her exploration of new genres is "ludicrously enjoyable", although he opined that the album was "synthetic" and "all Body [ sic ] no soul". Club opined that the ballads "work" and concluded that " Body Language shows Minogue as a surprisingly impressive presence in spurts, but she sounds better with her pleasure engine revving at full purr".
Although Body Language was not as much of a commercial success as Feverit performed well nonetheless. In total, it stayed on the chart for 30 weeks. Following its Sleepwalker - Various - Strange Love 3 (CD), Body Language was considered to be an example of Minogue's constant "reinventions". Credits adapted from the liner notes of Body Language.
